The 2023 annual meeting of the member clubs was held at the Campbellsport Sportsman's Club on Jan 26, 2023 at 7:00 pm. There were 5 nominations for donations. We were able to give each organization $200.00. Recipients were North Bristol Sportsman's Club, WLA Trap Team, Field & Stream Gun Club, Maribel Sportsmen's Club, and Sheboygan County Youth Trap League. Congratulations to the recipients. Our mission is to help provide funds to organizations that support youth shooting or to support other charitable shooting organizations. If you can't attend the meeting, feel free to send information about your club program to support youth shooting opportunities. Include sufficient detail so we can make a good decision about donation recipients. Thank you.

Occasional Site Outages
I recently received a note through the mail that people were unable to access the site. After a lot of time on the phone and on chats, and lots of research on my own, it turned out that the counter that I had been using since 2012 was linked with a site that was blacklisted with the hosting service's new malware scanner. I removed the code for the old counter and installed one from a different site. I no longer get any notifications that there is malware on the site. The issue should be resolved, but a couple of days ago, the site was down again. I had to reset a file, and the site came back up. I will continue to try to monitor the site for this issue.
If anyone notes that the site is down in the future, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
Shooting event to support Cancer Research
I was given some information about an organization called Gunning For Hope. The web site is GunningForHope.org. Check out the organization and consider supporting them.
Thanks to all who support "Cause Shoots".
We are all faced with challenges in our lives, but some take the form of serious health issues such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc. Many fellow shooters are directly affected by these diseases, and other shooters rally to support them with fund raisers in the form of "Cause Shoots", such as the cancer shoots at Berlin and Hartford and the juvenile diabetes shoot at Eastshore. I personally want to thank all of you who support these wonderful causes.
REMEMBER: INTRODUCE SOMEONE TO SHOOTING. IT'S THE FUTURE OF THE SPORT
